Media Should Celebrate Protests, Not Mock Them

Well written editorial by Russell Frank at, which appears to be an adjunct of Pennsylvania State College. The headline sets the tone of Mr. Franks remarks. He ticks off the New York times, among others. He says "the dominant tone of the Times's coverage of the Occupy Wall Street protest has been dismissive, as if political protest were some tired and ineffectual tactic from the '60s and participants are latter-day hippies who needn't be taken seriously." Well said sir, keeping in mind that many people think that this type of political protest is not only "tired" but also incoherent. Welcome to the wonderful world of free speech.
